Light-bulbIt is OK to click on "OK" to accept items/bonuses in Farmville!

Please_share
by Viet Tran - Mar 11, 2010 Star_s2,190 views

I'm tired of seeing people post a long standing RUMOR that they should not click "OK" to get a bonus,egg,or item . Then the rumor goes on to tell me to repost so it spreads to more unknowingly trusty players and that even Zynga said that rumor is true!! WELL HERE IT IS ROCK SOLID PROOF THAT IT IS A RUMOR.

1.) Mod Koopa's post #8 on the official Zynga Farmville forums,dated February 15,2010

*****************************************************
IF YOU STILL INSIST ON NOT CLICKING OK THEN TRY THIS TEST METHOD OUT!!!:

1.)When your chicken coop is ready to be harvested make sure you have at least 3 friends to volunteer but no more than 5 because the maximum amount of clicks for mystery eggs is only 5,...

YES CERTAIN BONUSES/ITEMS HAVE A LIMIT!!! THE GET FUEL BONUS HAS A LIMIT OF 150 UNIQUE CLICKS BUT NO ONE COMPLAINS ABOUT THAT! GEE I WONDER WHY!?!?!

2.)When asked to post the mystery eggs up on the wall feed click on the drop down menu to set who the post is VISIBLE to,.Input your volunteers names. Make sure the FIRST person who responds to the post clicks on "ok" and the others should be able to still accept the eggs.

TIP-You can plan this by communicating with the fb chat or message system so it can go smoothly. For example: After inputting everyone's name to filter the post message the first person to accept and click "ok on the post, then when they have confirmed clicking it, inform the rest of the people to try getting the rest of the eggs.
*****************************************************

- I personally don't click "ok" because I'm not going to sit there and wait for the game to load.,really the whole point of this post isn't about changing people's minds to start clicking "ok" but to discourage all the the rumors flying around.

RE: Willy Stroobants

Uh I just skimmed through your post below and I only understood about half of what you were saying but the other half just kinda creeped me out tad bit.

-All I can say is I know of no official sponsors for Zynga at this time.

-You really don't need to have FV cash to have a large and beautiful farm. Being CREATIVE can go a very long way.Being rich or poor,in my opinion, doesn't have to do with anything on how a virtual farm looks like.

-You said something about them giving you a "golden account" What is this about?

-Towards the end of the post I think you got a little too personal with some of your statements...might want to keep some of that stuff out next time, please?

I also don't click on OK it costs way too much time.
I click on an item.. wait a few min.. and click home.. it's the fastest way.. with my old/slow computer and bad connection (or are these the servers?) and it saves me so much useless clicking

ok... new to this so didn't even know a rumor was out. This is very interesting... and thanks for clearing up the issue...

@ Joanie

The discrepancies come from the fact that many people either don't stop to think or don't realize the parameters that have been set by FarmVille. For example, many people don't know about the Snag Bar or, if they do, don't factor it into their beliefs about this rumor. So when they see that a Spring Basket Redeemable is gone in six seconds, they assume that the "OK" rumor is true. They don't stop to realize that it is more likely that someone with a Snag Bar has already snagged the item. In addition, they also assume that there MUST be more than one item available to be snagged for every post. This is not true. For example, all Spring Basket Redeemable items have only one item available to be snagged. First person to do so will get it. So again, instead of realizing that maybe only one item is available to be snagged, they will believe a rumor that has been debunked repeatedly.

I just found a 3rd source debunking this rumor, this time it is a posted statement from FV community manager Lexilicious via the Official Zynga FV forums dated from March 5,2009.

I was told in no uncertain terms by a very trusted friend that by clicking OK instead of home or back would indeed cut off any further bonus points, eggs et, etc. I truly felt that must be so as some things would give quite a few on one item , the same item would come up and before 6 seconds were up they were all gone---I don't argue that it is not OK to hit OK but where do the discrepaencies come from or what are they due to? Incidently my friend was told this about dont hit OK by a very trusted friend of his ;-} So rumors abound~~~~~

Alda Cursi, esta bien hacer "CLICK" en OK para colecciones y huevos, no pasa nada.

Hopefully you will understand Spanish since it is much closer to Italian than English

"You dont need to click OK for it to show up in your gift box. It specifically tells you, "you can find in your gift box." But what does happen when you click "OK" is your letting the next person not be able to claim as well. Why do you think the item is gone is 12 seconds??"

It's gone in mere seconds because of auto scripts some people have that are set to not only grab them instantly but even refreshing the FB wall feed too to where they won't get a screen that tells them they are suspected of autoing/botting. Yes, I've gotten a screen from Facebook a couple times for Mafia Wars telling me I have been locked out for 15 minutes because I was sitting there clicking rapidly to do jobs,not even using scripts, it also happens when you have too many tabbed windows open for FB.

Also when you have hundreds of friends with some people using scripts then you have a really high chance of your items being taken quicker. Some items and bonuses have less or more quantities before it ends ,for example fuel tanks up to 150 friends(correct me if I'm wrong) can click on it before it ends but mystery eggs from chicken coops up to 5 only can click.

If you still don't believe clicking the ok button doesn't affect anything try this with some close friends:

Next time you get a mystery egg from your farm only post if for 5 friends and let they first one know to click "ok" and then inform the last 4 to click after the 1st person has clicked and find out the last 4 people get it. Make sure you filter the post to only make your post visible to those 5 friends.

I have a FV friend that does nothing but post that rumor. And all in caps. People started taking her off their friend lists because she was so annoying. However, I don't click it. Not because of the rumor but because I right click and open it another tab. So, it's easier for me to just 'x' out of the tab and go right back to clicking the links instead of waiting for the page to reload.
I AM ALL FOR CLICKING "OK"!!
